See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Skye House

Skye House is a private beach front villa that sits close to the historic town of Galle. The south facing property is just steps from the beach and provides a welcome escape for families and friends alike.

The vast property expands around a central pond with five en-suite bedrooms in total including two master suites. The children's room boasts six bunk-beds and each bed playfully dons colourful patterned sheets.

When it comes to dining, the in-house staff will ensure the fridge is well stocked with locally sourced ingredients, and then it's over to the in-house chef who creates a menu of favourite Sri Lankan dishes which can be enjoyed in the spacious dining room or aside the pool.

The property has a designated children's play area with climbing rope, swings, monkey bars and a pirate cabin for the ultimate garden adventure. Other facilities include a generous outdoor pool with sun loungers and a terrace table to enjoy breakfast al fresco.

As the property sits right by the beach guests can enjoy lounging on the sands or take a dip in the ocean (swimming is seasonal). If you venture out of the villa then a handful of local shops, inviting restaurants and Galle Fort sits nearby, entertaining both the shopaholics and the culture vultures.

Why We Love It

The views from the balcony are spectacular; green lawns, swaying palms and the lapping blue Indian Ocean.
